Overrating The Speed in Narutoverse

Published by JiraiyaFlash in the blog JiraiyaFlash's blog. Views: 134

I was thinking that notion/sentence to bring up but ı was bussy and dont care much. But after saw this monstrous idiocy then ı just wanna write something about it.

A4 (4th Raikage Unruly Ay) took on all 3 Sannin and come on top of 'em as the victor cuz he is faster ?!!

One of the stupidiest ideas ı ever heard of in NBD and believe me ı read so many shits in this forum. And this is easily Top 5.

---------------------------

Before debunking A4 as a kage and warrior. I wanna look at all this "speedster superiority" thing in all manga.

These are some of the most respected shinobies of different eras. And all of 'em officaly called as "Best of The Particular Era" .

What is the most important and ovbious sentence that describes the success of the shinobi ?

I think there is 4 of 'em

- Versatility in skill & power
- Hax in skill & power
- Intelligence on action and in will power.
- Reliable & Impressive Portrayal


Do you ever heard of some ninja that hailed as best of their era or most fearsome of their era or most deadliest of their era just with their speed ?!

NOPE !!!

Hiruzen hailed as (even at his old age) > A3 and A4
Minato hailed as >> A4

And definitely Sannin > A4+A3 in terms of portrayal & reputation.

No one cares one dimensional speedsters.

At least A3 covers his weakness points with his immense durability and strnegth also he is not hot headed and rushy as his son.

But A4 is a complete disaster.

Did he have versatility ? Nope. Didnt showed any projectile type attack he has no range at least A3 has Black Lightning (even w/o any feat with it.) Raikage did now anything about genjutsu, fujinjutsu, barrier jutsu, clone jutsu, summoning, This dude let his arm burn with Amaterasu cuz it aint a big deal for him. Cuz this dude didnt even used or gonna use a single hand seal/sign. There is no ninjutsu tooo.

And he never performed high level taijutsu w/o his speed either.

So all of he had immensive chakra reserves, top level physical attiributes (the most outshining of this attiributes is speed), inferior raiton armor.

THATS IT !!

Did he hax any hax abilities ? His only " mere haxy" thing is his speed but he didnt accomplished anything big with his speed.

Did he showed any high intelligence in anywhere in his combat career ? NOPE

Dİd he have a exceptional portrayal or rep ? NOPE

He aint big at any stat of 4 major Stats in the verse.




Lets check his career failures

-> Challenge to Jonin Minato -> Owned
-> Challenge to KCM1 Naruto -> Owned
-> Challenge to Killer Bee -> Owned
-> Challenge to FKS Sasuke -> Saved by Gaara from mutual death. And lost an arm in the process. he is too dimensional enough to force himselff thru enton shrouded ribcage susano. CUZ HE HAS ANY OTHER OPTION in terms of ninja skills. His only option was outlasting Sasuke but he was too damned UNRULY & DUMB for that.

-> Only kage who fall under 3T Sharingan genjutsu from a madara clone and saved by ônoki
-> Didnt able to kill Jugo 2x attempt.
-> His V1 Speed intercepted by Suigetsu, V2 Speed Intercepted by Gaara with ease
-> Didnt able to crack Madara's ribcage susano or pierce Gaara's little amount of sand.
-> He was the Grand General of the all army but didnt do nothing on strategy Shikaku runned all operation for him. Even Gaara was far far better commander.
-> His dead ass saved by Tsunade after Madara merked all Gokage
-> Didnt able to bring anything against Mini Shinsu Senju of Guruguru Yamato. Old-Age Hiruzen Edo was again portratyed as better than him in that scene.

Even A3 has low-feats that proves that you cant accomplish anything with just speed.

Edo-A3 bltzed by Gaara's sand twice
Dodai ( a mid-jonin) reacted and avoided Edo-A3 twice
One of 12 clone of Naruto get in SM and own A3 with ease.
Stalamated with a Bijuu but at their 2nd encounter he bringed help this time
Owned by 10000 fodder of a foreign nation (not an army from 5 big nation). If you think ım being unfair to him then listen to this.

Hanzo cleared entire Konoha Division by himself abd spare the life of sannin.
Base Edo-Madara easily spites hundreds of elite soldiers from 5 big nation in cqc in seconds
One Arm Jiraiya fought again 6PoP and took one of 'em down and able to escape. Same 6PoP demolished the strongest Village.
Naruto and Bee took on against 5 Sharinnegan Jinc Bijuus
WhiteMask Obito keep his place against Killer Bee + KCM2 Naruto + Gai + MS Kakashi w/o any worries. Sharing the same eye with Kakashi saved their asses.

So what A3 did was not an exceptional thing for any mid to high kage level ninja.


So A4 takin on 3 mid to high kage leveler just cuz of physical attiributes is a joke. Feats, reputations, portrayals and fundamental parameters of the series, ALL OF IT against that idiotic claim.

And lets skip A4 and A3 , tryo to look at "speed" in general.

Did Rock Lee able to beat Gaara just cuz of speed ? NOPE
Did Raikage able to force Madara to use a wood clone cuz of his speed ? NOPE, Tsunade & Ônoki did
Did Raikage beat some one in the series -> Nope
Dİd Minato has reputation just cuz of his speed ? -> Nope he hailed as 1 time per century type Genius by Tsunade and Jiraiya and also described as sealing jutsu master and inventin new jutsus. So speed just one side of him. He is not just all about speed.
Shizune was faster than Kabuto due to Kabuto's himself. What happened ?
Genin Kiba was faster than Genin Naruto . What happened ?
Kakashi was faster than Zabuza but this is didnt stopped Zabuza to take advantage from the location and locked up Kakashi ?
Jiraiya faster than each Pain Path but he didnt overcome Sharing Vision ..
Killer Bee far faster than Kisame but still had huge trouble against him.
Rock Lee was faster than Neji but still saw himself as inferior to him.
Raikage was faster than Tsunade but Tsunade blocked Madara's downward katon attack before Raikage even flinced a bit.
Tobirama was far faster than Kinkaku Force but he still used himself as bait/decoy and died.

I can multiply these examples.

Utilizing a Skill !

In this series wielding some important skill was never been enough for being a big shot.

BoS Naruto was wielding rasengan but didnt able to perform his War-Arc feats with his rasengan just cuz he was wielding it.

BoS Kakshi was wielding better and way haxy MS eye than than Itachi but just wielding it doesnt make Kakashi better than Itachi

Part 1 Oroc wileding the ET as a skill but this is didnt stopped Old Sarutobi to curse Oroc's all ninjutsu variants.

Minato wielding senjutsu but cant accomplish what SM Naruto or SM Jiraiya can do with Senjutsu !



So just wielding some skill wasnt enough for this show. A4 wielding some immense raiton armor and that makes him really fast. But he is just wielding it. Aint has any mastery onto it.

He aint use his speed nimble, agile and accurate as 7G Gai or a Sage

He aint able to use his speed versatile and think fast as Tobirama, Minato

He aint has any sensory or precog skills So like Lee said to Sasuke "Your eyes can keep up with me but your body cant". And A4 has the exact opposite of this .

His body can keep up but his mind cant. Thats why Tsunade outmaneuvered him against Madara.

So A4 just wielding raw physicall attiributes and Raiton Armor to buff this attiributes but he is not creative, accurute and resourcefull with this. He is just wields.

Thats why Obito was able to mock with him and make Raikage to toss in a wall cuz he cant control his speed like Minato or Naruto.

IN THE END;

1st Speed is a critical factor in this series but just a factor not a main reason. And its important how to utilize it. Just wielding it and runnig thru on a linear way aint enough to be efficient with it.

2nd Just being fast never be enough and the results in the series proves this.

3rd A4 was a joke. Most useless speedster of all series. And probably worst kagehood career in all narutoverse (his only rival is Rasa) .

And anyone who Thinks A4 could take all 3 sannin with mid diff or even A4 oneshots a mid-kage cuz of speed must consider to debate on any fictional work. Cuz they're not qualified.
